Working out in the sun-drenched fields of Mexico was difficult.
There were few trees and there was very little natural protection from the sun.
Some workers in these hot climates came up with a wide-brimmed straw hat that would keep the sun off their eyes and faces, in effect , carrying their own bit of shade around with them .
Taking the name from "sombre," the Spanish word for shade and the newly created hat was christened the "Sombrero."
Mexican culture goes back three thousand years.
